Virtual and augmented reality (VR, AR) are certainly hot topics right now, but when most people think of VR and AR, they picture gamers wearing headsets. However, VR and AR technology is more than just for play— it can be enormously beneficial in the work world as well.
Virtual reality is the computer-generated simulation of 3D environments you can interact with. VR is not to be confused with AR, or augmented reality, which enhances the physical world with sensors, video and audio, graphics, and other technology. In sum: VR provides an entirely virtual environment, while AR offers an enhanced physical one.
